Man faces felony murder charges after fatal accident kills woman

Often, the first job that Georgia residents seek as soon as they are old enough to do so is at a fast food restaurant. In fact, these establishments have become a regular part of daily life for many customers and employees, and no one anticipates a tragic event occurring at one. However, a recent fatal accident at a Taco Bell has resulted in one person's death and injuries to several others.

Georgia officials have charged an 18-year-old male with felony murder as well as aggravated assault and property damage that rises to a criminal level after what some officials are calling a possibly deliberate act. The tragic incident apparently started at a Burger King, across the four lane road from the Taco Bell. The accused driver is said to have circled the Burger King restaurant before speeding out the exit, accelerating across the busy highway. The vehicle then hit the curb, causing the car to become airborne. It ended up smashing through the front window of Taco Bell.
